Three large areas of upstate New York are now out of the running for commercial casino development after Gov. Andrew Cuomo struck a deal with the Seneca Nation of Indians to resolve a four-year-old dispute with the state.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there is a big enough appetite for gambling in New York to permit the state to expand casino operations while protecting the interests of existing racetrack-based casinos.
With New York's racetrack video lottery terminal operators looking to become full-blown casino destinations, a new player in the crowded market is asking regulators for the eighth and final harness racetrack license.
New York's nine racinos saw their highest-ever win-per-machine totals during the recent July 4 holiday week on the more than 17,000 video lottery terminals operating in the state.
